They don't sing the old lyrics at Churchill Downs anymore. I think they use "Youngin's"

Mint juleps are fucking gross! And I HATE THE DERBY. That is all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/3/16 6:08pm Folsom:

I'm surprised Jim is still coming to the station since he put down that big bet on Leicester.
Avatar    Tue. 5/3/16 6:08pm tomasz.:

i wish to try one of these mint juleps
Avatar    Tue. 5/3/16 6:08pm Cheyenne:

Horsies are cool. But the Derby is shady.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/3/16 6:08pm Carmichael:

They probably sing about "darkies" too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/3/16 6:08pm common:

horsey!

Hey all

We should start some kind of cat-racing league. First we have to figure out how to get the cats to race around a track.
     Tue. 5/3/16 6:09pm Listener Robert:

Chalmers, I guess that's because "African-Americans" doesn't scan well.
Avatar    Tue. 5/3/16 6:10pm tomasz.:

lmao "Gunrunner"
Avatar Tue. 5/3/16 6:10pm Marcel M:

I've never had a mint julep
     Tue. 5/3/16 6:11pm Listener Robert:

Cliff, there are various races of animals that are thought to be too much trouble to train, such as insects, where the start is the center of a circle, and the finish is the edge.
  Tue. 5/3/16 6:11pm chalmers:

A guy from Leicester also won the world snooker championship yesterday. It's 5,000-1 that I will ever understand the rules of that game. I always end up singing from "The Music Man."

where in the heck do they get these bizarre horse names?
Avatar    Tue. 5/3/16 6:12pm Danne D:

Yay Sportsytalk :)
Avatar    Tue. 5/3/16 6:12pm Danne D:

There should a horse named Sportsyhorse :)
Avatar    Tue. 5/3/16 6:13pm tomasz.:

had to get the word "Deflategate" to come out in my subtitles the other day
     Tue. 5/3/16 6:13pm Listener Robert:

I'm sure you COULD train cats to run around a track. because they train cats to do all sorts of tricks. And if they had a "rabbit' as in greyhound racing, it'd be even easier.
Avatar    Tue. 5/3/16 6:14pm Danne D:

5000/1 is bookie odds too - that is the price the bookie is comfortable giving. The real odds were probably much higher.

I'm not aware that there was a helluva lot of people that put money on Leicester though.
Avatar    Tue. 5/3/16 6:14pm tomasz.:

yeah my mind was blown today when i found out you guys don't have promotion and relegation in anything
Avatar    Tue. 5/3/16 6:14pm Danne D:

Hard to think of a comparison to Leicester City.
Some say Miracle on Ice but that only happened over 6 games. Leicester had to do this over a 38-game schedule which is mind blowing.
Avatar Tue. 5/3/16 6:16pm glenn:

apparently tom hanks bet a large sum on l.c.
Avatar    Tue. 5/3/16 6:16pm tomasz.:

yoooo what about the sports guy who did the gas mask bong hit. i like him
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/3/16 6:16pm Cliff:

Listener Robert: I saw some TV show about cat shows where they had them go through an obstacle course, and their owners would have to keep waving a feather in front of their faces so that they wouldn't get too distracted...the cats would keep stopping in the middle to lick themselves or watch imaginary insects or whatever. :)
     Tue. 5/3/16 6:16pm Listener Robert:

A visiting cousin got Smoky, a neighborhood cat, to run around in circles. My cousin (forgot whether it was Brucie or Diane who discovered this; maybe even Allen, their brother) dragged a stick of branches on the grass in our front yard while spinning in a circle. Apparently s/he knew pussy cats love chasing that.
Avatar    Tue. 5/3/16 6:16pm Danne D:

This sounds great :)
     Tue. 5/3/16 6:18pm Listener Robert:

Cliff, I have similar experiences coaching children in football. This evening because it's so gloomy, I'm skipping our spring training clinic. I guess cats bore easily too.
  Tue. 5/3/16 6:19pm chalmers:

@Danne D Not as shocking as LC and in retrospect it doesn't seem too crazy, but Northwestern going 8-0 to win the B1G in '95 without having been over .500 in decades is the closest in my memory.
Avatar    Tue. 5/3/16 6:19pm tomasz.:

Sochi, yeah
Avatar    Tue. 5/3/16 6:22pm tomasz.:

owned by Putin
Avatar    Tue. 5/3/16 6:23pm Danne D:

@Chalmers that was another example I though of as Northwestern had been terrible for years. But they had teams that were in the top 2 as recently (relative to '95) as 1971 - but yeah they certainly came to mind.

One could argue Rutgers run to the final 4 in '76 but they didn't win it all and that run was heavily aided by a very very favorable bracket (conferences were limited to no more than 2 teams in the tourney I think) as well as the fact that regionals were actually regional (and there wasn't much in the way of competition in the East regional as a result).
  Tue. 5/3/16 6:23pm djelrock:

LMAO
     Tue. 5/3/16 6:23pm Listener Robert:

Aw, come on, Bronwyn! "If you can call it a job" refers to its supposedly being fun. The person who says it is supposed to be envious, I think.

Reason is a Libertarian magazine
Avatar    Tue. 5/3/16 6:23pm Danne D:

@glenn Dave Hill would dispute that assertion.
     Tue. 5/3/16 6:25pm Listener Robert:

Gary Johnson is SEEKING the nomination of the Libertarian Party for president, again, but John McAfee & another are also contenders.
Avatar Tue. 5/3/16 6:26pm glenn:

sigh. libertarians.
Avatar    Tue. 5/3/16 6:27pm Macho Ayn Randy Savage:

remember when the libertarian party earnestly tweeted about a future where married gay couples defend their marijuana crops with their legal machine guns
  Tue. 5/3/16 6:27pm chalmers:

@Danne D Rutgers '76 is a a great run, but I agree that they got a break with the competition. I think Penn '79 had a tougher path (UNC, 'Cuse, St. John's). Of course, they got obliterated by Magic's Spartans.
Avatar    Tue. 5/3/16 6:28pm Danne D:

Another champion that came to mind as a possible comparison to Leicester would be Alan Kulwicki winning the 1992 NASCAR championship as an Owner/Driver. Though he did finish 8th a couple seasons prior so I still think Leicester is crazier.
Avatar Tue. 5/3/16 6:28pm glenn:

meh. i'm not too worried. i live in a place with 25% of the world's fresh water.

Chandra Levy - who had an affair with Congressman Gary Condit.

Gary Condit's son was always on the news wearing a Members Only jacket and washing his Camaro.

  Tue. 5/3/16 6:34pm chalmers:

But Condit didn't murder Chandra Levy. That's also the answer to "What was the media feeding frenzy when 9/11 occurred?"
Avatar    Tue. 5/3/16 6:35pm tomasz.:

hockey is good bc fights, basically
Avatar Tue. 5/3/16 6:35pm glenn:

oh, and the raptors beat indiana, too.
Avatar Tue. 5/3/16 6:37pm glenn:

that's not true at all, tomasz. fighting in hockey is way down, and will soon be illegal.
Avatar    Tue. 5/3/16 6:37pm tomasz.:

in that case my interest in it will go from "watching fights on YouTube" to "zero"
Avatar Tue. 5/3/16 6:40pm glenn:

the maple leafs DID suck. things have changed, believe me.

I knew if anyone would like to WWI take it'd be Bronwyn :)
Avatar    Tue. 5/3/16 6:45pm Danne D:

@chalmers yeah - Condit wasn't involved, unfortunately he was as convincing as William H Macy's character was in "Fargo".

(the actor was convincing at playing an unconvincing person)

The Rock's dad was professional wrestler Rocky Johnson. Sr. Johnson married wrestler Peter Maivia's daughter.

I recently caught a gameshow taping and the celeb guests were Martha and Snoop Dogg. She was wicked awkward there, too

Second pick of the draft, Carson Wentz, gets off the plane in Philly and immediately gets booed by angry Eagles fans. www.philly.com...

Of course you can watch a regatta at no charge; what are they gonna do, put up a curtain along the shore?
Avatar Tue. 5/3/16 6:53pm glenn:

philly fans would boo a winning team.
